FRANKFORT, KY. — The family of a state lawmaker in Kentucky says he will continue his re-election campaign after initial hospital tests indicated he has some sort of a brain tumor.
Family members of Democratic state Rep. Wilson Stone posted a message to his personal Facebook page on Sunday. It says Stone “had a spell” while teaching Sunday school. They said testing at a local hospital “revealed some type of brain tumor” and that more tests are scheduled.
“He reminded us that the election is 3 weeks from this Tuesday and for everyone to keep his re-election going strong while he recovers!” family members wrote.
House Democratic Caucus spokesman Brian Wilkerson confirmed the Facebook account belongs to Stone.
